Power-on delay

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I am new at this forum

I have a problem on my computer

when i press the "Power button" it has a delay of around 10 seconds to get to the bios screen

i can see the board led yellow and the fans are spinning fine in this time

however no signal to screen is passed only after about 10 seconds

i have had this situation since many months but i did not pay attention because someone told me it is a normal in my board due to some hardware checking etc

I have gigabyte x58a-ud3r mother board rev 1.0

but i don't think this is normal

what is the failure unit here? btw some day i heard a strange sound coming from my PSU

a sound like electricity zz zzz zz

now i don't hear that sound often just rarely

is that a sign of PSU being fail?

also it does the same thing when i reboot the computer it stay black for seconds before i see the 3 keyboard lights flashing, however when coming back from sleep state it does not have a delay.

i have googled my case it seems to have a different reasons for example the CMOS battery is dying.

Please help me.

It's normal.  I just timed mine, and I have to wait 14 seconds before I see the POST screen (or "the BIOS screen") and I have done very extensive tweaking in order to have the fastest boot time possible.  So if you only have to wait 10 seconds, then it's good.

 

Regarding your PSU sound:  is it loud?  Or do you have to put your ear very close to it in order to hear it?

Hi,

The time delay does not bothering me

what i was worried is that my system maybe low or high voltage because i see 2 yellow leds on board when power on computer or restart then they disappear after bios POST

the sound of PSU can be heard without get your ears near of it, i mean if you use the computer you can hear it.
but it rarely happen now, should i replace my PSU? what you advice me.

Those LEDs may be normal.

 

Which make and model PSU do you have?

One of the more common things to fail on the PSU is the fan, so watch that when you turn the PC on. 10 seconds to POST doesn't sound that abnormal, so I'd just concentrate on that funny noise you're hearing.

Aw, I don't know anything about the quality of this particular PSU, but I will say that it appears to be just a modern-day 550W power supply.  I mean, its +12V capacity is only 504W which is much closer to what a modern-day quality 550W power supply would have.

 

However, let's assume the PSU is still in proper working condition:  what else is in your system?  Also, is anything overclocked?

Oh good, it's way more than enough power.

 

So, when did (or does) this PSU noise happen?

 

How old is the PSU?
